Maybe you've already seen, but we had a sneak preview of some of the interiors posted by TalB HERE - Post #353 and HERE - Post #376 - so yes, they didn't waste much time in fitting it out.

Another quality pic from best.photographer.evah! Carlitos. Thanks for the recent spate of pics. It really lends itself to the camera IMO.

I'm starting to love this building more and more, at first i was really excited about the rendering, then the real product was a total let down, but now it's starting to grow on me, i just think it will look even better when more buildings are risen from around it instead of being the lonely 1000 footer on the west side. THIS building is only a start of what there is to come on the WeSt SiDe

I just can't wait for the rooftop garden. I hope they can place some big trees up there.

Well... The Black & White pics do a lot more justice to the renderings and what I expected this tower to be.
Big, BIG dessapointment besides its impact in the skyline... when you are miles away.

Perhaps the lighting installations will save it at night but really that grey mass just doesn't do it for me.
